Johnny A
$25 Advance / $30 Door *

For nearly 20 years Johnny A. has travelled the world effortlessly gliding through, bending and blending, musical genres to deliver his own unique style of instrumental guitar music. To quote the London Free Press, Johnny is "a musician who resists easy categorization, and that's always cool by us." 

And as JAZZIZ Magazine so perfectly stated, "Johnny A. has eclectic musical vision and the skills to realize it... A.’s music is both accessible and sophisticated." 

Never content with complacency, and always up for a challenge, Johnny again takes an adventurous musical left turn to present his distinct, instrumental guitar approach for the first time in a completely “solo” intimate atmosphere with “Just Me...And My Guitars”. 

With strong emphasis on melody and arrangements from the British songbook of the 60s, he will be bringing his fluid guitar style to select venues all across the United States and beyond. 

The evening promises to be a very special "living room experience" with some of Johnny's favorite songs and stories all of which have molded him into the musician and person he is today. 

It's no wonder that Gibson and Epiphone guitars have honored him with not one but three signature model guitars designed to his specifications. 

Don't miss this rare and unique opportunity to see Grammy Nominated, Boston Music Hall of Fame Inductee and one of America's finest instrumental guitarists, Johnny A., up close and personal. 

“Johnny A. has always had such a musical approach to the way he plays the guitar. He arranges his parts sort of like a symphony orchestrator, covering counterpoints and filling out harmonic structures. The tone in his fingers is always comfortable and friendly and a delight to feel. He is a thoroughly accomplished and powerfully effective guitarist”. 

3 time Grammy Award winning Artist - Steve Vai 

“Johnny A. is a light in a sea of guitar players. His unique and soulful full approach and his ‘ one man band’ chops are peerless. Melody - tone taste and a trick bag of surprises and a killer choice of material makes him a must see!” 

5 time Grammy Award winning Artist - Steve Lukather - TOTO 

“Johnny A. is one of the finest guitarist’s I’ve ever had the pleasure to listen to, and I always learn something when we get together. He is a consummate musician on a world class level. I’ll put him toe to toe with anyone!” 

Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Inductee - Elliot Easton, The Cars 

“Johnny A. is one of the finest guitar players on this planet...In a league of his own to be sure!” 

Bobby Whitlock, Derek & The Dominos 

“Devotion to melodies, tight dynamics and succulent tones perfectly temper Johnny’s balance of fire and ice.” - Guitar World 

“ Johnny A.'s magic crosses over because, like [Bill] Frisell, he doesn't just play guitar - he plays music.” - Premiere Guitar Magazine 

“Johnny A. lets his guitar speak for him with eloquence and spirit.” - Washington Post
